Additional information

  • Keep important elements (for example, text) centered in the frame and within the 576x742 safe zone.

  • Try to keep the top and bottom thirds of the image relatively minimal; loud patterns or lots of detail in these areas could create visual chaos.

  • Try to avoid using full black or white in the top and bottom thirds of the image.
